Since the original release of this volume some fifty years back, it remained the pure classic of the navigation as well as storm survival at sea. One of the unique features of this book is that it focuses on the lessons learnt during the real life cases. It is a great opportunity for the readers to benefit from learning the experience of the other people, showing what does and what does not work in such conditions.

The approach used by the author is very interesting – he managed to include numerous stories supplemented with the detailed analysis and technical advice to be taken into consideration in the future. This would cover the seaworthiness of the boat and its stability, preparations for the heavy weather sailing, rigging and spars, crew fitness, and many other important aspects. The readers will also find many effective methods for survival on different types of boats.

The book, referred to as the perfect and ultimate survival title, is based on the valuable contributions provided by the most experienced and professional sailors in the world, and it is definitely one of the most authoritative books on the subject. This sixth edition reflects all latest developments and achievements in the field of sailing, featuring newly introduced chapters on sailboat design, storm-sailing etc.
